HT has learned from reliable sources that the makers of Rajinikanth’s 2.o are planning to conduct a grand event in Chennai sometime in June to launch the highly-anticipated album of the film scored by Oscar award-winning composer AR Rahman.
Veteran editor Anthony has already started working on the film’s rough edit pattern. With only one song and some loose assemblage of shots left to be canned, the team hopes to wrap up the entire shooting before early April and focus on full-fledged post-production activities, including the extensive work on VFX.
The movie was recently in the headlines after Lyca Productions struck an unprecedented satellite deal with Zee Television Network at a whopping sum of Rs 110 crores, thereby bringing an approximate 25% return on the Rs 450-crore production, which is tipped to be the India’s most expensive project.
The film, a sequel to the blockbuster Enthiran, is again helmed by Shankar and stars Rajinikanth and Amy Jackson as leads. Akshay Kumar makes his Tamil debut as Dr Richard, an ornithologist and will be pitted against Rajinikanth in the movie, which has music composed by AR Rahman.
The movie is slated to hit screens in the 3D format in Tamil, Telugu, and Hindi worldwide on October 18 for the festival of lights.
